Republican controlled Wisconsin assembly passed a bill that will stop abortion coverage for women under the health insurance exchange set up by Obamacare.
In addition, the state imposed a law prohibiting sex education which mainly discusses vital information on reproduction for teenagers. The bill actually enforces a religious concept of abstinence-only teaching which goes back to the dark ages.
Therefore, sex education would be left up to parents which some democrats state will cause an increase in teen pregnancy and keep students in the dark about their own body and reproductive systems.
Most parents are unwilling to talk about sexual matters with their children and leave that information up to the schools in health classes. In Wisconsin that will no longer be the case.
In a country still reeling from a deep recession where jump starting the economy and stimulating job creation, republicans have used the past two years since the mid-term election to pass anti-abortion bills.
In most red states these anti-abortion bills were passed in republican controlled states throughout the country. The bill would prohibit abortion coverage even if the woman is paying for her own healthcare coverage.
Womens’ groups have come out against the anti-abortion bills and also a large medical association who have asked Gov. Walker not to sign the bill. The Wisconsin Medical Society sent a letter to the Governor stating the bill would “infringe on the doctor – patient relationship”.
Wisconsin Anti-Abortion Bill Charges Doctors with a Felony
The bill also has an attached punishment for doctors who fail to follow the edict exactly to the letter and they can be charged with a Class I felony charge.
The bill keeps doctors leery for the type of language they use when speaking to women about abortions and opponents argue that the bill creates obstacles to getting an abortion if required. The bill does nothing to create jobs, improve the economy of the state but regresses back into a religious government law banning abortion talk between patient and doctors.
